Pure and vibrant with layers of delicious tropical and citrus fruits and hints of Jalapeno and blackcurrant leaf. Fresh fruit flavours and crisp acidity combine to deliver a long and refreshing finish. A quintessential Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, it’s sure to impress.

The 2019 Marlborough growing season had a slow start with below average temperatures and higher rainfall resuting in cooler ground temperatures. Strong, even growth followed in the lead up to flowering and adverse weather events saw a mixed fruit set impacting yields. Our summer was New Zealand’s warmest on record with extended hot and dry weather resulting in advanced ripening and an earlier than average start to harvest.

Once harvested, the fruit was gently pressed and the juice fermented at cool temperatures to capture the vibrant fruit flavours from the vineyards. Rapaura Springs Sauvignon Blanc has a broad range of fine fruit flavours from each of the Marlborough sub-regions.

Within Marlborough there are many diverse microclimates and soil types. Rapaura is home to generous ripe fruity flavours: Wairau the pungent exotic fruits and passionfruit, Waihopai Valley and Ward add a flinty minerality to the mix with some citrus and the Awatere Valley giving generous herbaceous notes. They have taken each area’s qualities and blended them to achieve a full harmonious wine with pungent aromas and lovely acidity.

Try with grilled fish and herb butter, a crisp Caesar salad or the favourite fish and chips!
